You’ve found Amy’s “professional” home on the web, which is about as dusty as her “official” office!

You probably came here looking for info on the classes I teach. Almost every semester I teach the following two courses, which I’ve outlined below.

WRTG 3090/ATLS 3519: Storytelling Through New Media

OFFERED: One section every Spring and Fall semester


MEETING SCHEDULE: From 3:30-4:45 on campus on Tuesdays and Thursdays

Storytelling: the practice of sharing glimpses of our lives and experiences through brief stories about the moments that have shaped who we are, with the purpose of making an emotional connection with our audience.

New Media: using free and easy-to-use new media tools to compose stories with words, images, sounds, and visuals and to share them with others.

Do you believe in the value of sharing personal stories as a way of expressing ourselves, connecting with others, and offering new insights into human experience? Would you like the opportunity to extend your writing and design skills into the realm of new media formats and publishing platforms?

If so, consider signing up for this A&S and TAM elective, which also goes by the title Storytelling through New Media.

Digital environments have fundamentally changed the way people read and communicate. So why are we teaching students to write to audiences that won’t exist in the future, using mediums that are relics of the pre-digital world?

To communicate successfully in digital environments and with digital media, students need training in the core principles of digital rhetoric. This site is a step in the direction of offering that training.
